Posting the video on Instagram, VanZant captioned it saying, ” “Heart of a Warrior, Soul of a Lion.” No one can ever deny how much heart I have in my fights. At times I’ll drop everything I have ever learned and fight with nothing but pride, which doesn’t always lead to the best outcome. This is a reminder to myself, I already have the heart and soul all I need to do is take care of the rest. 👊🏼 thanks for the work @_zack_aaron_tattoo_”.
